Identity: Who Does God Say I Am?

What is identity? How can we discover it and know our worth and value? Identity is defined as the qualities and beliefs that distinguish a person. Our identity is the core of who we are. Everything we do and say stems from our confidence in who we believe we are. We make decisions or take

Divine Disruption: God has spoken and He does not stutter.

I believe the global predicament with COVID-19 is far more than just a medical crisis. In fact, everything we are facing — economic crises, political crises, financial crises, familial crises — goes much deeper than what’s on the surface. Everything visible and physical is preceded by that which is invisible and spiritual. If you want

Jesus on Earth

Jesus arrived on earth as a man to show us our true identity, created in His image, and to teach us who the Father is. Quiet Prayer helps bring us to the reality of who we are, who we were born to be, and who God is in us. We come to the reality that

Seeing Yourself as God Sees You

  Do you have a photo of your spouse, significant other, or children as your phone background, eager to show them off at the first opportunity to anyone and everyone? What about your driver’s license photo? Do you delightedly show it to others? Pass it around at parties? Copy it to your online profile? Or

Take Back Your Life: Look in the Mirror

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. ~ Albert Einstein WELCOME Harry Houdini was one of the greatest escape artists the world has ever seen.

What Will You Do With Your One Extraordinary Life?

Know Your Name

In a large auditorium after a women’s conference, ladies were filing out as music pumped energetically through the building. The excitement in the air struck a stark contrast with the words coming from Brianna’s mouth. A new mother, she had stayed behind to talk to me, painfully unraveling the nightmare she was living. She was

Better to Be Known than Famous

  If we are going to walk in the fame for which we were created, it will require that we learn to distinguish between His fame and the fame of this world. * Known But whoever loves God is known by God. — 1 Corinthians 8:3 We try to be famous when we should long

For years, I didn’t really know the significance of the name that had been chosen for me. Similarly, I’m afraid we have lost the significance of naming in our culture today. Many of us don’t appreciate the power inherent in names that confer meaning and value. That wasn’t true of those we meet in the
